Can't Sleep the Night Before...

Actually I could say THE DAY OF Ruby's arrival!!! I am just too anxious, I feel like I have sooo much to do, I have met myself coming and going today. Between my pre-op and Coop's doctor appointment, I was doing laundry and getting the house ready so I could leave it for a few days. Speaking of Coop's doctor appointment :( my poor son is SICK. He had to have two shots today, he is on two antibiotics, and two different breathing treatments. His doctor told me Cooper could not be around Ruby tomorrow (today), I am not ashamed to say I cried. I am sure the doc thought I had lost my mind, but I just felt so sorry for Cooper and myself. He is soooooo excited about his sister coming and I had visions of having my whole family with me to celebrate the life of Ruby Ann. I have felt like there has been this dark cloud hanging over my head today, I have just been having a pity party for myself and Coop. We are going to let Coop come to the hospital and see her behind the glass, but then he will have to leave :(. We're just going to tell Coop that Ruby has to get some sleep and he can see her tomorrow. If his fever is gone he can see her on Wednesday with a mask on! Can you believe this has happened this week!!!!? My poor mother gets the fun job of nursing Coop back to health. I am soooooo thankful she could be here to help.

I had planned on posting pics of our last "family of four" fun night at the bowling ally, but I just haven't had time. I will post them later because I just think they are too cute! Well I guess I better get off here and try to get some very needed sleep. Wish me luck!!! I am super duper excited to meet little Ruby and give her lots of lovin!!!! Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers!! I love you all!!!
